SEASONAL DORMS

We are excited to announce the remodeling of our summer housing! We are converting two of our summer dorms into lodges which provide individual cabin spaces and lounge areas for our seasonal guests. Pine Needle Lodge offers three cabins housing 8 youth each, plus a couselor/staff room. Woodland consists of 5 summer housing units, each housing 8-10 campers and includes 3 summer staff bedrooms. New larger windows provide more fresh air and lots of light! New bunks in each bunkroom, new individual cabin entrances, and upgraded common bathroom areas increase comfort and appeal. Each cabin will have their own lounge area to hang out in and do group devotions and rainy day Bible studies. You are gonna love the changes!
